    Thank you, Team Burbidge et al......wonderful event....as per usual.....

    Considering how lucky we've been, weather wise in previous years, we can't really complain....at least the rain was reasonably warm.....and the bike needed washing anyway.....

    The veggie food was fab (thank you, Becky)....the fireworks were great....and the company outstanding.........

    See you all next year.....or beforehand for some of you!!.....
    I'd rather be scared to death than bored to death.....

    Enjoy everything...regret nothing......

    Well, that could have easily have been a washout

    As it happened i think because nearly everyone had to be in the bar out of the rain it made the atmosphere very convivial, as opposed to previous years when people tend to stay around their tents drinking.

    Of course there were still the few tent drinkers who kept to their small groups.

    Hograost virgin

    My first Hograost and fate conspires to make 'losing my cherry' a most memorable one! Arriving Friday with no tents erected yet, and plenty of glum faces in the bar required a stoical approach to pitching up in the hissing rain. It actually went well and everything stayed dry.
    Things got better by the minute and a real team spirit quickly developed. I was amazed at the amount of work that Steve et al put into the whole deal, and that was just the week-end, the amount of pre event work must be mountainous! Super congratulations to all of you, and good news it made a profit too
    Really enjoyed meeting new faces and old acquaintances too. Looks like another event to become an annual one. Again, well done Steve and team

    Excellent weekend, made riding 5 hours in a downpour worthwhile, my unspoken plan to get my tent erected before I got there by Skygod and Ifan by having them take it worked exactly as expected, it was still in the bag when I arrived.

    Enjoyed a pleasant group ride home, arriving in Rochdale just in time to get soaked again.

    Well dome Bakerman.

    Good company, good cause, I will be back.

    As has been said elsewhere, all the right people turned up and another great weekend happened. If I hadn't gone I'd be annoyed with myself

    Thanks to Bakes and the army of purple slaves

    Well done Steve and team in spite of the weather I had a great time as with all previous hograosts. When I rolled off the ferry and was met with a wall of water (otherwise known as the A20/M20) and then the carpark (otherwise known as the M25) and arrived at the rice paddy fields of Andovershire, I must confess there were moments when I doubted my own sanity but on rolling up one of the first people I saw was Steve and when he smiled broadly and said ' If you can make it there is know excuse for anyone else not coming' I knew I was in the right place. A hot cuppa and a doughnut (or 2) later and the tent went up and from that moment on the weekend was a blast.

    Interestingly, as soon as I boarded the ferry home on Sunday afternoon, the clouds parted, the sun came out and stayed out all the way back to Belgium. I sat out on the top deck with my wet bike gear spread around me and basked in the sunshine and the memories of another great Hograost!

    A big thank you and all due credit to Steve for all his, and his family, friends and acquaintances, efforts to make the weekend what it was, despite some of the worst weather ever.
    For those that couldn't make it, chose not to come, or had other commitments, you missed a cracking good weekend. Friends old and new, superb entertainment and a warm dry place to socialise, meant we didn't really notice how bad the weather actually was. I'm well chuffed that enough of us made the trip to support Steve's efforts and that the reward was breaking better than even. Given the rain i'm surprised to hear we came out on top, but we did. Who knows how big the weekend would've been with a full turn out???
    Next year, whatever the weather, get yourselves to Andover... it'll be fantastic!

    Thanks Bake's. Your reward shall come in the next life.

    The weather was crap, the band was crap and my mates were crap. I look forward to doing it all again with the same ingredients next time.
